View Full Version : SQL Server requires MDAC, but MDAC won't install

04-21-2006, 10:06 AM
I'm have OnSQLServerInitialize in my project, and a message is returned that says MDAC must be installed. However, when I try to install MDAC on XP, I get a message that says MDAC is incompatible with this version of Windows.

Are you just using the OnSQLServerInitialize() function, or do you have at least one connection and script in the SQL Scripts view?

I have the function OnSQLServerInitialize().

The OnSQLServerInitialize() function is designed to work in conjunction with the SQL Scripts view. You need to have at least one connection and script in the view to get the function working properly.

Thanks hidenori. I got past the MDAC error and am getting to my database server dialog now.

I filed the work order #IOC-000006013 so InstallShield runtime will report an appropriate error instead of "MDAC must be installed".

Thank you for your feedback.
